On The Pain of Dating, The Pain of Love:

With the advent of #metoo, I ‘ve been thinking a LOT about the pain caused between men and women, men and men and to, I imagine, a far lesser extent, women and women.

 

I originally got into the dating and relationship “business” because I wanted to figure it out for myself.

 

I had been married from 23-39 and suddenly was single…

 

And I didn’t know ANYTHING.

 

Being a dad and husband was my entire adult experience.

 

And back then, I launched into the dating world with high spirits and a sense of adventure.

 

It was soooooooooooooooo much fun at first!

 

I LOVED the attention, sex and love I received from women.

 

I loved connecting deeply with new women – new lives, new viewpoints, cultures, stories – it was fun and fascinating.

 

But the more deeply I got to know individual women, the more I have coached men and the more I do this work – the more I see navigating PAIN at the core of intimacy.

 

Getting close to another human being means opening up your wounds – whether you like it or not.
